I'm very happy to see you like the project, thank you very much!
It was a dream of me to make this real, and now it comes true.

Haha maybe sounds easy, but there are a thousand of details that almost drove me mad
But everyone of them is a nice challenge

Some people in Germany asked me if it was Plug&Play
Jep, for sure

Not only does it make tremendous power, the BMW V10 has one of the best exhaust notes of any engine ever made. I can't wait to hear this thing!

Excellent swap!

Wow, so much enthusiasm

David, tell me which pics do you want to see
There are so many details that I didn't show, but they are more technical than show&shine.
Real cool pics will follow when the BBS E88 are finally mounted and the engine compartment is finished

So, now I need your help

As in Germany almost nobody uses universal air filters, maybe some of you can help me.
For the first testruns I want to use simple K&N (or other brand?!) universal clamp on filters, which will be directly mounted on the intakes of the airbox.

The inside diameter of the box is 82mm, and I have enough space to fit a filter with about 300mm length and 180mm with.
Round tapered (coned) filters would be perfect, just like this:
http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...x?prod=RU-5122

What's about K&N X-Stream filters?

Would be cool to hear some recommendation

We want every tech detail.
For instance: what dme did you use? stock? aftermarket?

That aluminium brace to hold the radiators; I assume that is not stock but a custom cnc made piece?
